Warning at startup: Could not load type 'EPiServer.Core.PropertyXForm', falling back to base type instead

Hi,

Does anybody have an idea, why do I find in my Episerver Log the following entry 519 times in the log file each time I start up the project? 2019-09-03 12:51:11,089;[9];WARN;EPiServer.DataAbstraction.PropertyDefinitionType;Could not load type 'EPiServer.Core.PropertyXForm', falling back to base type instead

We do not use XForms in the project and I can only find references to it in web.config, I guess which came with the installation.

Thanks in advance.

PropertyXForm is an old type that was removed in favor of EPiServer.Forms. It sounds like you have one or more properties defined with that type...If you look into [tblPropertyDefinitionType] table, you probably find them there

Thanks for your answer. It is in tblPropertyDefinitionType, but if I join tblPropertyDefinition, there is nothing, am I making the correct join?
select pd.pkID, pdt.*
from tblPropertyDefinition pd
right outer join tblPropertyDefinitionType pdt on pdt.pkID = pd.fkPropertyDefinitionTypeID
where pdt.TypeName like '%XForm%'

pkID	pkID	Property	Name	TypeName	AssemblyName	fkContentTypeGUID
NULL	13	6	XForm	EPiServer.Core.PropertyXForm	EPiServer.XForms	NULL

That looks correct. You probably want to try to delete the PropertyDefinitionType (note: proceed with backups and caution) to see if that is enough to get rid of the warning log

Thanks, it helped indeed and the system seems to be working fine without it.

Could this be some leftover from earlier CMS versions after a migration? Right now using CMS 11.11.

Are there any risks doing this, could this break something? We are definitely not using XForms in our code and using only the Languages Addon.

There are other similar warnings, they might be connected, but these are only 5 line of warnings in the log, not so bad. Although they cannot be found in table tblPropertyDefinitionType:
